Shang­hai held by Urawa

The Myanmar Times - Weekend - - Sport -

Shang­hai — Hulk’s lon­grange strike wasn’t enough for Shang­hai SIPG in a 1-1 draw with Urawa Reds of Ja­pan in the first leg of their Asian Cham­pi­ons League semi­fi­nal on Wed­nes­day.

Hulk, the Brazil­ian for­ward signed for around $60 mil­lion in 2016 by the big-spend­ing Chi­nese club, scored his ninth goal of the tour­na­ment this year from 25 me­tres. Yo­suke Kashi­wagi equal­ized 13 min­utes later to give 2007 cham­pion Urawa a vi­tal away goal.

The even­tual win­ner will likely meet Al Hi­lal in the fi­nal. The Saudi Ara­bian team thrashed Perse­po­lis of Iran 4-0 Tues­day. – AP
